It’s been a struggle for me to get excited about Super 8, if I’m entirely honest. There’s no nostalgia bone in my body for the film to tap, and I’m not super-eager to watch Cloverfield by way of Close Encounters in small town America following a group of potentially grating kids. The promotion for the film has slowly started to take shape here towards the end though, and this latest trailer they’ve cut does a decent job of selling the thrills and density of the film, while keeping the alien threat oblique. I’ve never been against the film (JJ is too slick of a director to not expect some level of fun), but I think I’ll be a little more energized walking into a screening this week after this new look at the film.
See for yourself, from MTV…
